A line of severe storms moved across eastern Nebraska and western Iowa Monday evening.

Sirens were sounded across the Omaha metro as the storms approached TD Ameritrade Park.

The sirens were sounding for strong winds, which were gusting in excess of 70 mph.

NCAA officials estimate 20,000 people had to be moved to safety during the storm.

The night game was delayed. Vanderbilt and Florida will return to TD Ameritrade around 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

No tornado was reported or warned for within the Omaha metro.
